wonderful cypress forest trail. Replica and restored early 1800's village very interesting. Check out the garden, and if you are lucky, the gardener will be there to tell you about his crops. It was fun to watch a few craft people and local painters at work.

A recreation of the company town that sprang up in the 1800's producing iron. They have Artisans on site at different times/days, we got there rather early and there was only the gardener, who was a very nice elderly gentleman and was great with the children. All of the buildings were open and children were able to handle some things.... More

I remember this site as a teenager growing up a few miles away in the early 70's. There was nothing there but a dirt road off the blacktop that led down into the swamp, surrounded by tall gloomy cypress trees. The only thing visible was the tall brick furnace, which at the time had a fairsized tree growing out of... More

We enjoyed the iron smith and the weaver. The buildings were explained by signs and an informative Map. Pleasant gift shop with items made by the smith and the weaver and historical books. I wish we had time for the hike.

The blacksmith demonstration was wonderful. He made a square iron hook with a twisted shank from a round rod of iron and spoke about the craft as he did it. Much history about the town, and well worth it.

It was laid out very well. There were expert "artisans" available at some of the areas. Very friendly staff.

This is such a fun place to learn about the settlers who lived in Furnace Town. I really loved watching the Iron Worker. He was so facinating that I did not want to leave. Be careful not to visit when there are bus loads of screaming school children or at a time when the staff has just dealt with a... More

Quaint historic spot that was interesting to see. Particularly the original iron furnace that is still standing. I would not leave without going on the Nature Conservancy's Leifer trail. Neat to see the cyprus trees up close as its not common this far north!
